  • Drummer wanted: 3 piece band (guitar/ld vox, keys/sax/flute/vox, bass) looking for experienced drummer. Harmony vocal capability is an asset but will consider those without. We have approx 20 songs pretty tight with another 10 selected to complete our setlist. Musical direction is primarily progressive rock (Toto, King Crimson, ELP, Genesis, Moody Blues, Steely Dan, Traffic) with some progressive/classic rock (Doors, Santana). We like to get the signature parts of songs pretty close to the record but leave room for tasteful input everywhere else. Groove is everything. Gigging is in our plans if the venue is good but we’re not looking to be playing every weekend. Our main goal is to play the music we want to a high standard and have fun doing it. If interested, please email (l is lower case L).

Her Canadian musical debut the following spring was broadcast nationally by the CBC and her "warm ocean of a voice" was applauded in the Globe and Mail. Since then she has excited and mesmerized audiences with her own special mix of salsa, Latin jazz, and traditional Cuban songs, in Toronto, Montreal, New York and all around Ottawa. "Havana native Caridad Cruz packs a powerful punch," pronounced The Ottawa Citizen. "To really appreciate Caridad Cruz's music, you have to see her perform live."
